Wo. have four j fi killed and fifteen wounded. He reports further, that it was an extremely j hot fight, and many of our wounded are se- I verely so.

('ora meroial says;?1 vA.ilvices from the from to-day s?nto that the Confeder ate army across rhe Kappahannook is very ac tive. Their position at the river fords Is de cidedly offensive at present, as large number? of troops are massed in front of them. The main picket line on rhe Rappahannock 1b as strong as ever, bun the troops behind Freder icksburg seem to have mov^d elsewhere.? Many think that a movement forward is con templated by rhe Confederates, while others inter that troops are being sent away to de fend Richmond.v It is reported by the Washington corres pondent of the Cincinnati Gazette that whai Gen. Hooker next moves he will have com mand of all the forces in Virginia. The Suf folk and Norfolk troops, those Iving at. the ex X > t- CD rreinity of the Peninsula, along the Orange and Alexandria railroad, and about the de fences of Washington are to he alike subject to his call. There were many rumors circulating yes terday in regard to military affairs at and near Harper's Perry and at several other points along the Bait, and Ohio Railroad. Nothing had been received at the military headquarters confirming these reports, but on the contrary it had been ascertained that nothing had occur red to give rise to any rumors of a forward movement of the Confederates. The reports of a threatened attack upon Harper's Ferry, and the driving in of the cavalry pickets at Charlestown. and the subsequent preparations for battle, are-all pronounced without founda tion in fact. The Baltimore and Ohio Rail road Company are running all their trains, on regular time, without .interruption at any point. The commanding officer's latest ad vices from forces stationed at various points within the department, report no^enemy visi ble and no indications ol a movement. A Raid.?As the train which left Alexan dria on Saturday morning at 7 o'clock, des trued for Bealton near Rappahannock rail road bridge, was within three.miles of War rent on Junction, it was at tacked by Moseby's men. The train at: the time was running down grade, and the first "intimation had oi the nearness, of the Confederates was by the fireman, who was on the lookout, discovering a rail being moved from the track by means of a wire which ran into the woods and was pull ed by a man concealed there. Before the en gineer could stop the locomotive it ran off the track; and simultaneously two pieces oi artil lery were fired by the Confederates, one of the balls passing through the boiler. Lieutenant Hartshorne and thity men of the Fifteenth Vermont regiment were on the train at the ; time, but they jumped off and hastry retreat- ! ed} only two or three of the company firing. The ? Confederates then set fire to the cars, ten in I number, and destroyed them. On the train ! were several newspaper agentf, one of whom, j John Harborri, lost property to the amount of i two hundred dollars. The only persons injur-j ed that we could hear of were a newsboy, who I had his leg broke/ and the fireman. Shortly ; afterwards General Stahl. with two^ regiments ? of cavalry, came up: seeing which the Conied- j erates retreated. A dispatch received from . that General at headquarters stated that he ? had captured Moseby's artillery, consisting of f one piecc*3, and a few prisoner. Tfif-: Prinok op W ales' Maiden Speech. I?On the 2nd uk. the annual dinner was j given by the Royal Academy, the Prince being ; among the guest?.

(Cheers.) 1 cannot on this occa j si on divest- my mind of the associations con ! nected with my beloved and lamented father. I His bright example cannot fail to stimulate j my efforts to tread in his footsteps (loud ; cheers;] and. whatever my .shortcomings may I he. I may at least presume to aarticinate in at ,? -?* | the interest which he took in every institution | which tended to encourage art and science in | this country (cheers) but more especially in ; the prosperity or the Royal Academy. (Loud 1 cheers.) Adverting to my marriage, 1 beg you ! to believe how grateful I feel for, and 1 may I be permitted to add how sincerely I appreciate, i the sentiments you have expressed with refer* i ence to the princess. (Loud cheers.) 1 knew | that I am only speaking hey mind in joining : her thoughts to mine on this occasion. (Loud S cheers.) We neither of us can ever forget ; the manner in which our union has been ceie 1 bra ted throughout< he nation (cheers); and J j should be more than ungrateful if I did not ! retain the most lasting as well as most pleasing <! recollection of the kind expression and recep : tion which my attendance at your anniversary ! meeting has evoked this evening.
